Ghostbusters: Afterlife | Average Guy Movie Review

A woman moves her family to a small town in Oklahoma to settle her estranged father's affairs. Whilst there, the kids learn who their grandfather was, about his work as a Ghostbuster. And with all the strange occurrences going on in this small town, it soon becomes clear why he left New York. Ivan Reitman, director of Ghostbusters  and Ghostbusters II  has officially passed the torch to his son Jason Reitman. A successful director himself, Jason was the moody kid that once told Ray Stantz (Dan Aykroyd) "my dad says you guys are full of crap". It would appear that he has had a change of heart, because not only has he brought the original timeline/universe into the 21st century, he has opened up the franchise to a whole new generation of fans. Something he credits Paul Feig for making possible.  Afterlife  is everything you'd expect a Ghostbusters  movie to be, wrapped up in this touching family drama.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife | Moustache Trailer Reaction

We have another trailer for Ghostbusters: Afterlife . Much like those that came before it, the "International" trailer hints at all the delightful chaos that's coming to the town of Summerville, Oklahoma, as the responsibility of protecting our world from the paranormal is passed to a new generation of Ghostbusters.

Ghostbusters  is well known for being a mix of sci-fi, horror and comedy, and Afterlife  looks to be no different. The trailer opens with a truck racing through the night, before crashing into a crop field. At first the driver appears to be running from an unseen pursuer. But given that said driver has a certain piece of specialist equipment in their possession, it seems that they're more likely luring someone or something back to their home. The likelihood is this is Egon car

The Goldfinch | Average Guy Movie Review

After surviving the bombing that killed his mother, the life of young Theo Decker spirals out of control. The trauma of his situation combined with a series of unstable homes leads to trouble with drugs and alcohol, and the only constant in his life is the priceless painting - of a Goldfinch - that he inexplicably stole from the scene of the bombing. Now grown up and working as an antiques dealer, Theo finds himself in trouble with a client to whom he sold a forgery. But what is it that the client wants in recompense? Based on Donna Tartt's New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, The Goldfinch purports to be a tense and engrossing thriller about loss, survivor guilt, and moving on. Unfortunately, the opposite is true. It meanders through several periods in Theo's life - played by Oakes Fegley and Ansel Elgort - and never really seems to know where it's going. You'll sit there waiting for the movie to find a course, and for the entire two and a half h
